Wood County Gets Grant for Records Project

Going paperless and storing records digitally.

Wood County started the process and now a state grant will help move it along.

County Clerk Mark Rhodes says they started the preserving and managing program in Wood County about two months ago.

The county now receives $10,000 as part of a statewide movement.

Thirty-five other counties also receive the grant, totaling more than $400,000.

Rhodes says there are records starting in 1986 and now they are working on getting everything digital, starting with the most recent and working back.

He says the grant will mostly be used to pay employees overtime to work more on this project.
